New Releases 4/12/17

Alrighty folks, its bottling time of year, and we’ve gotten a couple products on the shelf recently. 

I’ve created a new Tasting Room Current Selections menu page on the website (under Visit Us), and linked it to Facebook. I hope to keep it up to date. 

Apples Doux II – a semi-sweet champagne-method cider. Differs from the original Doux by using all Anglo-Franco true (tannic) cider apples – even for the final sweetening. 

Pommeaux – the Apple dessert wine is back!

Wisconsin Apple Brandy – is back!  Hurray. And there’s a limited amount of Cask Strength, too. 750mL, 118 proof. 

Product Goings and Comings


The 2011 pomage of Pommeaux is gone from the Tasting Room.


We are on track to release the 2012 Orchard Oriole Perry and Kinglet Bitter Draft Cider next weekend. These will be Tasting Room exclusives this year.

We also have all the glass on hand to bottle up more dessert wines. You should come out and see how stuffed the winery is right now.
